For many diseases, there is likely to be a large variation in individual susceptibility. This can be modelled by introducing frailty. We shall give several examples, in particular from cancer epidemiology and from cancer screening. Frailty explanations can often be seen as competing with mechanistic explanations. Probably, the degree of variation in susceptibility is generally underestimated.
